Acting Governor Codey has more than 30 years of experience in crafting the State Budget. As Senate Co-President, he directed the Legislature through the State's worst fiscal crisis since the Great Depression, while managing to preserve and restore funding in the Budget for critical programs and services.
Codey is currently fighting to keep property taxes down by requiring schools and local governments to control costs, while working to achieve long-term relief through reforming New Jersey's system of local taxation to fund public schools.
Does it seem odd to you that Codey touts his 30 years of experience “crafting the state’s budget” and at the same time takes credit for “directing the Legislature through the State's worst fiscal crisis since the Great Depression”?
In terms of his fighting to hold down property taxes that fund public schools, we haven’t seen any plans to that end and property tax bills are soaring.
